Item 2.03
Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under and Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

On December 13, 2018, Conformis, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Fifth Amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Loan and Security Agreement dated January 6, 2017 (as previously amended, the “Loan and Security Agreement”) with Oxford Finance LLC (“Oxford”).

The Amendment, among other things, reduces the revenue milestones under the Loan and Security Agreement that apply beginning in January 2019, grants the Company the option to prepay $15 million of the $30 million in term loans advanced under the Loan and Security Agreement and reduces the Company’s restricted cash covenant to $5 million.

Except as modified by the Amendment, all terms and conditions of the Loan and Security Agreement remain in full force and effect. A copy of the Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

On December 13, 2018, the Company prepaid $15 million aggregate principal amount of the $30 million in term loans under the Loan and Security Agreement, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon and a pro rata prepayment fee.

Item 8.01

Financial Statements and Exhibits.

On December 13, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing certain business updates.

The Company announced it plans to continue to execute its new product development programs focusing on the Conformis Hip System, iTotal G3 and cementless Press Fit knee. In the second half of 2019, the Company expects to achieve full commercial launch of its Conformis Hip System, as well as the limited commercial release of its iTotal G3 total knee. The Company also remains on track to deliver the limited commercial release of its cementless knee offering in early 2020.

The Company has selectively identified opportunities to expand its distribution in certain international markets. The expansion into other international markets is intended to help offset the sales weakness the Company is experiencing in Germany.

In December 2018, the Company reduced its personnel base, resulting in a reduction of approximately 10% of its total workforce. The Company expects to incur employee severance charges and other exit costs of approximately $700,000 in the fourth quarter of 2018 and generate annual personnel expense savings in excess of $4 million in 2019.

In addition, the forward-looking statements included in this Current Report on Form 8-K represent the Company’s views as of the date hereof.
